GUEST,Beachcomber Tech: Wider guitar neck (25) Tech: Wider guitar neck 26 Nov 18

Arthritis has made some chord shapes more difficult for me to hold down, over the past number of years. I recently recommenced attending a "sing along" on Friday nights at a local pub but found some little difficulties in playing. Could any members recommend a steel-string, accoustic guitar with pick-up, that I could finger more easily. I tried a friends Classical guitar last Friday, with it's 50mm nut size and found it ideal for my not so nimble fingers. Is there a similar width accoustic, with steel strings ?
Another friend advised that I try to procure a twelve string model and change the strings to six, would a twelve string's neck be that wide ? generally ?
